Being resilient means being able to spring back into shape after being bent, stretched, or compressed – which you’ve probably felt as a care partner. Think about it as the ability to recover readily from illness, depression, or adversity, and become stronger.
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with The Dementia Sherpa, Christy Turner will help you better understand the importance of, and how to use resiliency for better dementia care.
In case you’re new, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, is a regular guest on The Alzheimer’s Podcast – where she joins me for discussions to help empower you to be successful as you care for someone living with dementia.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor. She has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,100 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
